Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…
Q: If I want to do very simple improvising, over simple pop songs, do I really have to practice the scales in all five positions? I know about six different scales but they are 3 different types; Maj. Scale, Maj. Pentatonic and Min. Pentatonic. Or, is it enough to just familiarize with the sound of the scale and just listen and play what sounds right? Is it enough to just have a feel for it, or do I really need to know the notes?
Nowhere does it say everyone must shred. In fact, keeping things simple often makes solos and lines more palatable to a larger audience. Remember that old saying, “Keep it Simple Stupid.” By using a few easy to remember box shapes, anyone can quickly cover major or minor sounds with a straight forward solo, or composed melody line.
